I read so many dystopian novels from the school library in the 90s ...
In this one a group of people survived some catastrophe (perhaps nuclear).
There was a young girl, maybe she was the narrator. I'm guessing she was around 10-12 years old. There was a sense of civilization, culture, habits etc. being forgotten. Of everything being very bleak.
By the end, their language was falling apart.
The very last lines of the book were written in a kind of "broken" language. Maybe these were notes written by the girl or some other survivor. I'm not sure if the words were just misspelled/with weird grammar, or if the sentences just made no sense.
I have been looking for this book for 20 years. Anyone?
ETA: No, sorry - 'my' book was more sad and quiet and didn't have that plotline with technology getting banned. But this one sounds cool, I think I'll check it out, so thanks!
[And Moopet: I can see that "Random Acts of Senseless Violence" is described as "darkly hilarious", so it's definitely not that one either. 'My' book left me in a bleak and weary mood].
